I use the word "show" in the sense of "TV show".
in the sense that it has a format, a expected host, and is trying to
appeal to large audiences.
it certainly has worked for TV...so why should people not use this
formula for videoblogging if these are the desired goals?

when i say "personal videoblogs", i guess i mean more of a diary format.
yes, i am often the "star" of my videos...and it can be like a "show"...
but i also have no format...its more like a scrap album that will only
have value in the future.

That new rockNroll videoblog. what is it about?
music. has a nice format. its cool. great to download the video iPod
for wacthing on the subway.
this couple can now reach a huge audince with no permission from anyone.
i liked that video they showed recently of the guy getting kicked in
the balls by the girls in bikinies.

My videoblog. what is it about?
probably me. or not...i also post a lot of text.
as a blogger, im not just using my blog to make an RSS feed of
videos...i also use my blog to link to things i find on the web.
video just allows me to expand what i can share with people.
